It is usually not advisable to go swimming until 4 to 6 weeks after delivery, when the cervix has closed completely, vaginal bleeding has stopped, and the risk of uterine infection decreases.

For c-sections, vaginal bleeding has stopped and your scar is totally closed, you can swim.

Swimming is one of the best forms of exercise for those recovering from child birth because it puts so little stress on your body.
